No Khannnnnnnnn, For You!

No Khan in Star Trek 2!!!

Word came today that the chief engineer, Scotty himself, has shot down rumors that Khan will appear in the new Star Trek movie by J.J. Abrams. Simon Pegg (Scotty) has confirmed in an interview with The Telegraph that Khan will not be the villain in the upcoming film.

“It’s not Khan,” said the actor. “That’s a myth. Everyone’s saying it is, but it’s not.”

Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Sherlock Holmes in the BBC series "Sherlock", is said to be playing the role of an adversary to Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise. It was rumored last month that his character would be that of Khan Noonien Singh, previously portrayed by Ricardo Montalban in the television series and the movie "Star Trek: Wrath of Khan".

So the Star Trek community can breath a collective sigh of relief and thank the ghost of Gene Roddenberry that Simon Pegg has a big mouth.

This is Todd
Boldly Going!!
